OULD YOU leacli Saint John, New 
^^^ Brunswick — tlie centre of travel for 
the Atlantic provinces of Canada? 
Then a fine line of steamers and two 
great lines of railway, with lesser 
routes, will take the tourist there with 
speed and comfort. He may spend 
the summer days in that picturesque 
"City of the Loyalists," breathing in 
the invigorating air, and lingering 
amid the breezes that are wafted in from the Bay of 
Fundy. Natural features of rugged beauty, and 
scenes of historic interest will tempt him to prolong 
his stay,— the beetling cliff, the rounded hill, the 
worn and tilted rocks, telling of mighty upheavals 
and the forces that worked in the long ago; the 
wonderful "reversing falls," at the mouth of the 
Saint John river, and how thoy were formed ; scenes 
of historic interest telling of the aboriginal dwellers 
of the past, the struggles for mastery between the 
French and English, and the making of the country 
by the loyalist forefathers ; the \aricd incidents and 
relics which tell of the efforts to carve hom«s out of 
the wilderness, hew down rocky barriers into streets, 
build wharves and ships for commerce, and rear the 
edifice of a stable city government. These are of 
surpassing interest to intelligent visitors, telling of 
human effort and progre.s8 in the triumph over rugged 
nature. 



■■H 



Perhaps the visitor to Saint John from the West 
may choose to come by one of the fine steamers of 
the Eastern Steamship Company. It so, there may 
pass in imagination before him the thousands of 
craft of every size and shape that have ploughed the 
waters of the Bay of Maine and the Bay of Fundy 
for the past three hundred years— from the Atlantic- 
tosse.! barque of Champlain, the discoverer of the 
Saint John, to the great ocean steamships of modern 
times. The rugged coast line of southern New 
Brunswick, the bold headlands of Grand Manan and 
Campobello, the intricate maze of countless islands 
and inlets around Pa.ssamaquoddy Bay, form a picture 
to delight the lover of natural scenery. The tides 
sweep resistlessly in and out, circling around islands 
and headlands, either pouring their floods without 
stint mto bays and rivers, or ebbing away to leave 
bar- the fucus-covei'ed rocks, or the half-bared liull 
of a fishing vsssel stranded upon the beach of some 
sandy cove. The hardy fishermen are busy securing 
the spoils that the tide has brought them, or are 
resting from their toil. Near the shores of Grand 
Manan we may see the Indian skilfully guiding his 
frail canoe amid the swirling currents, hunting the 
porpoise and gathering in the harvest of the sea, as 
his forefathers did in prehistoric days. 

If the tourist to Saint John wishes for more 
variety, and less of Fundy's sometimes boisterous 
mood, he may cross the fringe of the Northern 
Atlantic by night i., one of the fine sea-going steam- 
ers of the Dominion Atlantic Bailway Company, 
from Boston to Yarmouth, thence by rail throu-h 
Western Nova Scotia to Digby. As he passes by 
Acadian settlements, the "gables projecting over 
the basement, which protect and shade the doorway" 
of Norman cottages, the dark-eyed haUtanU, and 
groups of merry children playing about the doors, 
will recall the simple Acadian farmers of long ago. 
(S)

The commodious steamer "Piinee Rupert" will take 
the traveller across the Ba; of Fundy in a little 
over two hours, and, refreshed bv the cool breezes 
he w,Il find himself at Saint John towards the close 
of a summer afternoon. 

Among many trips across the Bay, the writer 
ronembers one « few summers ago, and the memorv 



of it will not fade because of the matchles. beauty of 
tbe scene. The surface of the bay was like a mirror 
across which the occasional puff of a summer breeze 
caused a tremor on the water, or an idle flopping of 
the sails of countless fishing boats, while far up and 
down the bay great ships, like pictures, waited for 
the breeze that would not come. Behind frowned 
the north mountains of Nova Scotia, while farther 
eastward than the eye could reach was Blomidon

nearing are the Carleton Height^ crowned by the

Iiland, with it« warning lighthouse. The low lying

countlew rainbow hue* and tinU from the hilla and 
water, around xu. The memory of luch a day ii a 
p rpetual joy ! 

If the touriat doea not wiah to come to New 
Bmnawick by aea, he may enter it by the Interco- 
lonUI Railway, paaaint in view many of it* noble 
nvera, catching glinipaea of the aea and long viewa 
at ooaat Une, without paying the tribute that Neptune 
•xacta from aome of thoae who venture upon hia 
fita. No matter where the touriat may paaa 
tlirough New Brunawick, there will be the oha.m of 
foreet clad hUla, the varied and pictureaque beauty 
of lake and river, the cultivated valley- hillsidee, 

dotted with comfortable homea, and where the 

evidence of contentment and induatry. 

Paaaing eaatward from Montreal a \ Quebec, 
over the Intercolonial Railway, in full view of the 
broad Saint Lawrence, there wUI be recalled to mind 
the beginnings of Canada,— its diacovery, the flrtt 
feeble colonies, harassed by Iroquois enemies, and 
then the long etr ^^le for supremacy between two 
great empires. The narrow f»rms, the long rows of 
Tillages centred by church and convent, the tricolor 
floating from diminutive flag-staffs, the careless gossip 
of groups of Aaiitonto, tell us of a France in lan- 
guage, temperament and religion as real as when the 
French flag floatjd over the citadel of Quebec. 

Should the traveller "change cars" at RiviAre 
du Loup, and tur . southward over the Temiscouata 
raUway, he will pass through by picturesque lake 
Temiscouata into the valley of the Madawaska river 
and aeon reach the fertile meadows of the upper

had dived deeper and deeppr into the earth, will give 
an opportunity to study some of the rare natural 
features of this magnificent stream. Now past 
broader and smoother waters, where pent hills no 
longer shut in the eager flood, we see islands of 
emerald, and long stretches of fertile meadows and 
(14) 



prosperoua faims, the rich inheritance that the long 
toiling river-flood of the past has given to the toilers 
of to-day. 

The grand river Tobique, and other branches 
flowing into the Saint John from the eastward, 
suggest canoe trips through the wilderness, with 
short portages to the Restigouche, Nepisiguit and 
Miramichi, rivers famous for the delights they afford 
to the sportsman and to the wearied denizen of 
cities. Here are great primeval forests, the home of 
big gcme — moose, caribou, deer ; here are woodland 
lakes and streams awaiting the cast of the angler ; 
here is found that exhileration that comes from 
poling a canoe up swift streams and then dashing 
down long stretches of rapids, breathing the free air 
and taking iti the glorious scenery of a northern 
wilderness. 

The beautiful town of Woodstock spreads over a 
knoll which commands a far-reaching view of the 
Saint John river, one of the most picturesque and 
beautiful landscapes to be seen in any country under 
the sun. Railway communication between Wood- 
stock and Fredericton does not yet permit us to 
follow the windings of the river, nor gaze upon the 
varied scenery of the gradually broadening valley. 
If tiie tourist will entrust his impedimetita to the 
railway, and himself to the graceful canoe of a 
Maliseet Indian, he will be skilfully guided through 
rapids, past the sites of the once great Indian villages 
of Medoctcc and Aucpac, whose palisades have long 
since crumbled to dust, and finally be led through a 
maze of islands that swings the tortuous river to 
every quarter of the compass. The experience will 
be a delightful relief to railway travelling, and if the 
guide of the canoe be the descendant of an ancient 
Maliseet warrior, and at all communicative, he will 
delight to recall the traditions of his race. 

The fair City of Fredericton, the capital of the 
(16) 




province, with its shade of grand old elms, its 
Cathedral and Parliament buildings, beautiful in 
their architecture and surroundings, its University, 
on a hill overlooking a broad and beautiful valley, 
and gently undulating hills beyond, may ra.ike the 
tourist content to end his canoe trip here. Pursuing 
his further • lurncy to Saint John by one of the 
comfortable river steamers of the Star line, the broad 
river, and the still broader meadows that now open 
out, will recall the time in distant ages when this 
(18) 



valley was pai jl a great inland sea, whose waves 
lapped the sides of the distant hills. Now the 
stately elms, the well-ttUed acres, the far-extending 
meadows of Maugerville, and other flourishing settle- 
ments, tell of a time — more than a hundred years 
ago — when New England energy and industry 
began the task of tillage ; and everywhere, on inter- 
vale and hillside, the sweep of the river brings into 
view a smiling landscape that ^hows how well the 
example of thrift and industry has been followed. 

Lower down, on the right, nestles the quiet village 
of Qagetown, where two hundred years ago a French 
seigneur held his forest court, amid rude followers 
and still ruder savages. On the right we pass the 
entrance to Grand Lake, the Waahademoak, and 
then the "blue" Belleisle opens entrancingly to 
view, with the promise of side trips at an early day. 
But Saint John is our mecca now, and passing the 
Hampstead hills, and the rugged scenery of the lower 
Saint John, we have feasted to the full on the glories 
of the ever-changing beauties of this river. 

But if the tourist by the Intercolonial would 
enter New Brunswick by the " North Shore," he will 
continue his journey beyond River du Tx)up on the 
train hurrying along the banks of the St. Lawrence. 
Leaving this majestic river, and turning to the south, 
the railway winds through the beautiful Metapedia 
into the picturesque valley of the Restigouche, 
whose cool sparkling waters, from distant fountains 
in the wilderness, are ever the delight of the canoe- 
man and angler of the lordly salmon. As we near 
the busy railway town of Campbellton, the river 
expands into a broad estuary, on whose waters was 
fought the last naval battle between the British and 
French in their war for the possession of Canada. 

And would you spend a few days in a quiet 
retreat, choose Dalhousie, a few miles distant, a 
pretty little village nestling close to the edge of the 



Bay Chaleur, its Hr-clod heights and the sea-girt 
terrace — on which stands the old Inch Arran hotel 
— commanding a view of a distant Tracadiegaah and 
the mountains of Quehec.

If «e would revel for a time in sea bathing, 





branch lines from the Intercolonial would bear us to 
Richibucto, Buctouehe, Shediac, and southward to 
Albert County, to the beautiful villages of Hopewell 
Hill, Riverside and Albert, within sound of Kundy's 
roaring tides. 

Turning to the west from Moncton, soon the 
fertile valley of the Kennebeccasis opens to the view-. 
Past well-tilled farms, the homes of Loyalist ance-stor 
(28) 




and later immigrant ; past the beautiful villages of 
Sussex and Hampton, we come to Rothesay, and in 
view of the broad Kennebeccasis, merging its waters 
westward into the broader Grand Bay. An ideal 
place it is for yachtsmen, and pennons float on the 
breeze from many a jiunty craft bearing the mystical 
letters R. K. Y. C. (Royal Kennebeccasis Yacht 
Club). The sombre "Minister's Face," a wall of 
rock, rises from the north side of the bay, and 
beyond is Clifton, perched on a sunny slope. But 
(3U) 



the bay has it tragedy. The spot is point<Kl out 
where R«nforth, the English oarsman, met his death 
while contending (or the championship of the world 
with the famous Paris crew of Saint John. 




A long way round it has been from the citiea of 
the West, by tlie 8aint Lawrence and the North 
Shor« to Saint John, on its sea-girt peninsula, but it 
is a way rich in natural beauty and in historic asso- 
ciations. 

If the tourist would enter Saint John more 
directly from the west, he ma - come by the shorter 
line of the Canadian Pacific, and Boston and Maine 
railways. Crossing the St. Croix, at Vanceboro, into 




lilL 



New Brunswick, the name of the river will recall 
the island at the mouth, where Champlain and 
deMonts spent their first loneiy winter in Acadia, 
and it will also recall boundary disputes which 
threatened the peace of the border people for many 
years — happily long :.ince settled. The stretch of 
country through wh'ch the railway passes east of 
Vanceboro is of little scenic or historic interest.

ward to the progre»«ve border town of St. Stephen, 
and the charminK summer resort of St Andrews' 
and northwHi-d t.. Woodstock and the upper Saint 
John. At Frederic-ton Jumtimi there is a branch 




line to Frederioton. For aome diatance eut and 
north of McAdaiii the country i» almost a wilderness. 
There may be seen giant granite boulders, half 
buried in the yielding earth, and lakes hollowed out 
in the primeval days, when huge ice masses clasped 
the land in an iron embrace, excavating basins, and 
leaving huge boulders and drift on the surface to 
mark the retreat of the glaciers. Everywhere the 
country is intersected with streams, and dotting the 
surface are lakes innumerable, furnishing abundant 
fishing resorts. 

Soon we enter the valley of the Nerepis, expand- 
ing into broad meadows before it flows into the Saint 
John, the beautiful stream winding hither and 
thither, its placid surface mirroring the blue sky or 
fleecy clouds, and the foliage of elm and maple, 
viburnum and alder, bending gracefully from its 
banks. 

At the pretty village of Westfield we come in 
sight of the Saint John river, with its magnificent 
stretch of "Long Reach," fourteen miles of broad 
and busy current, losing itself to the eastward in the 
distant hills of Hampstead. 

The whifl' of salt air that comes up from the Bay 
of Fundy is an invigorating tonic to the tiled trav- 
eller. Winding quickly round the curves that over- 
look Grand Bay, into which the Saint John and its 
tributary, the Kennebeccaais, expand before entering 
the "Narrows," the train reaches the bridge that 
spans the "reversing falls," and "slowing down" 
the tourist catches a passing glimpse from the car 
window of the ever-shifting waters of the rock-bound 
gor^je, and the wondrous beauty of point and island, 
and spruce-clad hill beyond. Winding through rock 
cuttings, over trestle-work spanning ponds filled with 
lumber, circling the extremity of the busy harbor, 
we enter Saint John. 

Why do tourists year by year come to Saint John

hills in Rockwood Park, from Mount Pleasant, Fort 




■ 



Hnwe, and lound by the Suipciwion Bridge to Mar- 
tellu Tower, with the busy harbor and city always 
in view. Nowhere can more varied and picture«<|ue 
scenery be found. I.et him spend another day at 
the Falls, and study all the moods and shifting 
scenes of the river that pulses stronRly through the 
defile of HK-k, finding his way by twining paths to 
vantage points, where he can watch the strife be- 
tween the river and the tides of ocean Ihat has been 
wageil for thousands of years. 




Th* •trong inconiing and outgoing tidea, the 
wide ■tretohea of " B«y Shore," on the weatern aide 
of the harbor, with the facilities for bathing, the 
many loenea of hiatoric intcreat about the city, the 
busy life and enter|>rize of the citizena, the evidence 
of energy and induatry in triumphing over obataclea. 
Theae and many mattem of intereat will cauae the 
viaitor to linger in thia choaen apot.
